Establish in 2000, the Saxonian company ENCO started out as a manufacturer of stainless steel exhaust systems for such marques as Porsche, Ferrari and Lamborghini in addition to providing special prototyping services for race teams and tuning companies. With such clients, evolution towards the tuning segment was inevitable, and now under the ENCO-Exclusive brand name, present their latest product - the Porsche Cayenne Turbo based ENCO 550 GT Biturbo.
One of the first things you'll notice are the black lacquered one-piece 23x11J XXL-rims with white ornamental stripe. Wrapped in snug fitting 315/25 R23 tires, 6-piston front and 4-piston calipers lie beneath with brake discs measuring 400 x 36 mm (front) and 380 x 32 mm (rear). Additionally, developed for the Cayenne's air suspension, ENCO offers an electronic module which lowers the 550 GT up to 50mm.
For the aerodynamic package, ENCO has restyled the front bumper fascia with larger cooling slots and an Audi-esque big grille. The lightweight carbon reinforced hood sports a powerdome with two subtle additional air vents. Muscular side skirts help bring the 550 GT closer to the ground visually while the roof spoiler, rear bumper fascia with its integrated diffuser and protruding four exhaust tips gives a striking appearance.
Apart from the excellent sound, the established specialist for exhaust systems puts a special emphasis on increased efficiency. The interaction of ENCO-components, such as sport baffle, sport catalysts, high performance manifold and an optimized motor characteristic, lead to an increased efficiency up to 550 hp / 405 kw at 6,100 rpm per minute. Moreover, the torque grows to 730 Nm at 2,300 – 4,600 rpm per minute. The modified Porsche-SUV shortens the spurt from zero to 100 km/h to an impressive 4.9 seconds and increases the maximum speed up to 282 km/h.
The interior receives a tasteful makeover with decorative stitching on the dash board while the leather seats and door panels receive matching inserts and trim. The slip-resistant steering wheel with airbag also gets redesigned for a matching look. Multimedia features include headrest integrated monitors which can be connected to a DVD-player, a DVB-T-tuner or game console.
Prices for the ENCO 550 GT Biturbo start at 170,000 euros ex works.
